I’m reading Workless by Tim Dunlop a researcher who studies work trends. He aims to be optimistic. But the premise of the book is terrifying. In the next 10-30 years, many jobs will be eliminated due to some combination of artificial intelligence, apps that automate processes, and smart robots.
The optimistic take by Dunlop: there will be more creative jobs. The boring work will be done by technology. That’s great if you are well positioned to take advantage of these changes.
If you are in your twenties or thirties, you should consider how these changes might affect your career.
If you are a parent, you should contact Career Counseling Connecticut to help figure out how to position your children for the radically new world of work (or not work).
